That's about it. I don't know where you heard that liveaquaria LR was not good. That's simply false. They are not as cheap as some places but they do have hight quality LR.

Fill the tank about half full and add water, the heater and power head. When you get to your temp, add salt mix to get it to 1.025. Put the base rock down, add the sand, add the LR (if you can see) and add mixed sw to complete filling the tank.

Thanks! I just heard that it was expensive, took quite awhile to deliver it and their service was not good.

They may be a bit on the expensive side, but their shipping is outstanding and so is their customer service. I have been using the doctors for years for dry goods and liveaquaria for some livestock and coral purchases.

Allright thanks. I just have a question about you mandarin. How big of tank do you keep it in and will it eat frozen foods or just copepods.
